    I will not never get rentar cars at thrifty shops. They are not that much friendly and it is too much time wasted to have my car. Pickup station seems far away from LAX

    The shuttle bus drivers won't pick you up at the airport, had to get a cab. (While waiting, over twenty rental car busses for every other service stopped)

    Do not rent a car from this place. We waited over an hour to pick up the car at 1 am on a Friday. They had 3-5 employees working and the line was out the door.

    Long long wait for the airport shuttle. Take the Fox shuttle that comes more frequently & drops off next door. Only two options available for a compact and my car was dirty & smelled like body odor.

    Get the car price online at their website. It's always the cheapest and if not, show them for a big discount!!

    This place is a piece of crap. They check your credit score and if you don't have a certain score you won't be able to rent. Go to National they don't do credit checks and give free upgrades.

    Be prepared for a long wait for the shuttle. Sign up for Blue Chip beforehand or be prepared to wait for 2 hours before they get to you.

    Took us 1.5 hours to get a car here with a bad radio!!

    Too long a wait with very few attenders on a Friday evening. Even the ones who were there showed no hustle despite the growing long waiting queues.

    Worst place to rent a car. The guys don't even check cars: we had to come back twice, went through 3 different cars because they didn't change the oil or check the tires... NOT FUN

    Worst place to rent a car. Waited in line for thirty minutes to check in, and were asked to wait more, again, to get our car. All the waiting at 1 am. Absolutely pathetic

    Terrible policies. They did not tell us that we had to bring in our gas receipt and thus charged us 10 dollars despite us bringing the car in with a full tank of gas.

    It seems they only have 1 shuttle and the world's slowest driver.

    Don't rent from these guys. They might seem cheap but it will end up being more after they nickel and dime you for everything.

    Terrible company...they try and find numerous ways to charge you extra. Use a better company!

    My favourite part of my rental experience was the early 1990s Mitsubishi that I was given after reserving a premium car. Gotta thank my lucky stars!

    Service is bad. Workers are rude if you don't bother to buy insurance. They looked down on you as if you cant pay.Manager is rude too. Think twice before renting their cars.

    Horrible - waited 30 mins for shuttle which didn't show. Had to take one from a friendly driver of another agency. Did not have the car reserved available, only a minivan. Unfriendly & uninterested.

    Wait forever for the shuttle! I've been standing here, watching a dozen each of the other companies' shuttles come and go, and Thrifty took 20 minutes. Use another company.

    Make sure you link up your airline frequent flier account. I earned 150 miles per day using a triple mile offer.

    This will be my last time renting Thrifty...especially this location. It is filthy/disgusting in the waiting area and they will charge u for gas even w/ a full tank if u don't have a receipt!

    Do whatever you can to rent a car from someone else unless your time isn't valuable to you.

    Shuttles take forever, cars are not so nice, but they are typically the cheapest.

    Don't bother paying $200 to hire a gps for a week, buy one at bestbuy and return it when you're done.
